With a little altering in mind
We took delivery of lot of smashing stuff to alter this week, wood items including jewellery boxes, arches, glass topped boxes etc and key cabinets like this one that Louise Crosbie has altered using Paperbag Studio stamps. Also papier mache items including mini vintage suitcases, vanity cases and Torsos. Plus we have textured tiles and clasp handbags. How much fun could you have!
Inka Gold paint now comes in 50ml pots making them so much more affordable .Inka Gold paint is a super thick wax which can be polished and gives and intense pearlescent sheen to clay, a deep pearl lustre to wood, adds rich permanent colour to metal well it pretty well works any surface porous or non porous. It's a bit too thick for brushes so it's best applied with sponge, "Cut ‘n Dry Foam" or even fingers!
Plus we have Croco Crackling Colour, a crackle paint that produces a deeply crackled and almost reptilian finish. It can be used on almost any surface though glass and plastic should be treated with a transparent primer first.
